Abstract

To avoid potentially deadly consequences from paradoxical emboli, early detection and accurate characterization of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is highly desirable. We report on a patient with a suspected pulmonary AVM who underwent ultrafast time-resolved 3D MR angiography of the pulmonary arteries. The case documents the suitability of the MRA technique as a noninvasive alternative to computed tomographic angiography and digital subtraction angiography for accurate pre-therapeutic characterization of pulmonary AVMs.
